GEICO announced a new approach to retaining and cultivating IT talent today, with a three-year Technology Development Program that aims to recruit college graduates with technical backgrounds.

According to the insurer, the full-time rotational program, based in the company's corporate headquarters in the Washington, D.C., metro area, is designed to give technical college graduates a well-rounded experience within IT at GEICO.

"It is a very exciting time to begin a career in IT," said Greg Kalinsky, GEICO's CIO and SVP with responsibilities for IT operations. "The role of technology and the rate of innovation and transformative change has never been greater in business or at GEICO than it is today. Our technology development program is designed to provide a foundation for success by providing our program candidates with a comprehensive set of experiences in mobile and web development as well as IT operations."

Associates in the program will rotate through GEICO's information services, systems operations and Internet business divisions; technically speaking, according to the posting, the associates will work through programming, networking and architecture, software engineering and database management skills. After the program is complete, participants move into positions on technical teams best suited for their interests and skills.
